The 12 maps above are a tongue-in-cheek look at the various ways the UK is divided besides Brexit or how to pronounce scone.
And before anyone complains, they are meant to be humorous and should not be taken too seriously.
You can see each map in more detail below:
1. UK Divided By Accent
2. UK Divided By Bakeries
3. UK Divided By Booze
4. UK Divided By Civilisation (Or Lack Thereof)
5. UK Divided By What People Wear When It’s Freezing Outside
6. UK Divided By Religion
7. UK Divided By Hatreds
8. UK Divided By Horses
9. UK Divided By Inbreeding
10. UK Divided By Landscapes
11. UK Divided By Music
12. UK Divided By Rugby
The maps were inspired by the Atlas of Prejudice maps:
- Atlas of Prejudice: Mapping Stereotypes, Vol. 1
- Atlas of Prejudice 2: Chasing Horizons, Vol. 2

I thoroughly enjoyed your “12 ways to divide the UK”. I shudder to think what you could do to the USA!
Barrow, Whitehaven & Workington are rugby league towns.
You could extend the chav bit in inbreeding to include most of the western M62 corridor!
Wow. Just when I thought the UK couldn’t be more unfair and snobbish, you surprised me. I wonder if you would have posted this had your family been held back from getting jobs and alienated at college because they faced this kind of rampant prejudice, the way mine have?
bro theyre just jokes bro

No isle of wight?
Wars is a haven for paramilitary flute bands? (Map 11) Don’t tell any of the BRASS BANDS that famously are the main welsh music stuff.
Seriously, they’ve descriebd the landscape of “T’ North” as all “postindustrial depression”, have they forgotten that the huge grey section includes (from south end to north end of the region): Lincolnshire wolds, peak district (white limestone peak), shropshire hills, peak district (dark millstone grit peak), south pennines, lincolnshire wolds, yorkshire wolds, yorkshire dales, yorkshire moors, north pennines, lake district, northumberland forests, northumbria coast, cumbria coast and cheviot hills? And the “dreary suburban sprawl” ought to be expanded to take in norfolk and peterborough?
The grey section is basically where all the best scenery in England is!
It is tongue in cheek, or did you miss that? I speak as an ‘inbred farmer’!

You can see this was clearly written by some southern twat. We don’t punch horses in Robin Hood’s Bay. Cock.

Very good. Available as a poster?
Its a joke ffs. Wtf is wrong with some of you???
Nothing but ill-informed (mostly negative) stereotypes. A font of ignorance.
It’s funny until, the bit about South West England being inbred pirates. From Bob Plymouth (South West England).
When it’s cold, the Welsh come out in shorts and flip-flops for some reason. I’ve never understood it. Normal clothes in the summer. Shorts and flip-flops to go shopping at McGlen in the winter!
